Seeing The Swede seems to have lost the plot(if he ever had one),which English manager should be offered the International managers job(should he be mad enough to take it)?

No way Maclaren, the guys an idiot.
Iain Dowie wouldn't be a bad choice IMO.

Maclaren has been brainwashed by Svens resiem (sp?) this move would be pointless

Only thing against Iain Dowie that i can see, would be his lack of experience at the top flight. Good bet for the future though!

A strange debate to be having after Sven's first defeat in a qualifier as England manager, particularly given that his lucrative contract means the FA wouldn't dismiss him just yet anyway.

Never been a fan of his style of play, it seems to revolve around one player instead of a team effort.

Liam Daish's 'style of play' has also been criticized this season. Until lately, of course. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

True, but i think Liam has passion, and the players are starting to show some(or is it only Chaz and Greenies enthusiasm), but Sven doesn't seem to instill any in his team. I wonder if it is because he isn't English, or his players aren't interested, and only going through the motions for a nice payday. If it is the latter then he should bring in players who really want to play for their country.

Iain Dowie represented Northern Ireland at international level, so technically at least, is as English as Eriksson anyway <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

I agree that the next national team boss should ideally be English, but Sven won't go until after the World Cup (if we get there) because of the payout involved.

The question "Name the only established English managers in the Premiership" could apply here too!!

Allardyce has got to be number 1 candidate although would he be able to handle all the ego's in the dressing room

There's a very good candidate located at Cobham and sometimes around the Fulham Road, but I don't think the F.A. could afford him !

So the shortlist coming up from most papers etc. is:
Steve McLaren - no way
Steve Bruce - I would be livid if he got it
Stuart Pearce - has managed about 10 games ever, is not really experienced enough
Alan Curbishley - has done a good job at Charlton, but would he adapt to the international scene.
Sam Allardyce - Visions of Peter Crouch and Kevin Davies battering foreign defences.
Bryan Robson - just no
Peter Taylor - Has done a great job at Hull and with the under 21s so is used to international management. Was pisspoor at leicester though.

I still don't think Peter Taylor can manage his way out of a paper bag. I remember somewhere someone questioning whether Big Sam Allardyce could manage the egos in the dressing room. My answer? Of course he [****!!****] can! He's managed to keep Ivan Campo in Bolton for a few years. He's kept Jay Jay Okacha around when others are sniffing for him. He's taken Bolton into Europe. Bolton in Europe!!! Could Sven Goran Bedhopper take Bolton into Europe? I don't think so

Sven really should go after the disasterous performances in the last two qualifiers. But whilst it remains in our own hands he will not be sacked. I think he will either go after we lose to Poland or when we crash out of the World Cup.

The choice for a replacement should be either Curbs or Big Sam. They have both done great jobs at small clubs and established them in the Premiership without spending shed loads of money. McLaren is a muppet who has chucked away millions on some pretty crap players.

No, he did better than Big Sam: Took charge of Swedish third division side Degerfors and guided them to the top flight within three years and later a massively unfancied IFK Gothenburg to the 1982 UEFA Cup inside two years.

Of course he would. All the other names in the frame have had at least a bit of money to throw around to maintain a position in the Premiership - look at how little cash Curbs has had to use over the past seasons... As an international manager you have to get the best you can from the players available to you... How is that really any different from what he's had to do for the last few years?
